Hello, new version with:
- Bullet Game Engine
- SoC Fluid patch
- New particle stuff

ton wrote:Bug fix #3033

Using "make parent armature with creating vertex groups" option gave
corrupted memory when one or more bones had the "Deform" option not set.
Was caused by old boneclass SKINNABLE variable. To end this confusement,
removed this define from code.

Note for future Armature tool coders; don't use this bonelooper
functionality. Operations in Object mode for armatures should use the
Pose Channels, which is a simple ListBase to go over. I have to recode
the 'create vertexgroups' still...

Bugfix #2996. Delete vertexgroup didn't update Outliner.

Bugfix #2999. Nkey buttons had a limit for input of 1000.0. That's not
much... made it 10 times larger, to match the max zoom level.

Nevertheless; on our ancient todo is that we once should give number
buttons 2 limits. One for the actual min/max values, and one for the best
sliding experience (matching zoom level or distance for example).

My first DerivedMesh code! :)

Bugfix #3002: Using 'calc weights from envelope' WKey in weightpaint mode
now uses the subsurfered vertex coordinates to calculate weights.

Hello, I can't compile without yafray, and why? Do you have any problem with Yafray?

Hi lguillaume, thanks for telling me about the boolien
patch not being in the last build. I should have spotted
The fluid sim keeps improving, and I like the progress
bar in the header. At first I thaught it had hung, looking at
the cursor.
Running the old jenga demo in the bullet engine, it seems to
me that the collisions are too energetic for the amount of
gravity. Of course this can be tweaked with damping, but
it seems too strong if this is the default.
Havent got round to cheaking softbodies, particles ect, ect.

this is really a ps,
I have noticed while editing a mesh, after a split
operation, it draws the selected faces strangely/
differently, and smooting groups are not drawn
correctly until you leave edit mode.

this is not finished, but the basic workflow can be- setup static particles(wt a step so that there's only one at one place of the surface), then weight paint the group you need, make dupliverts of objects(hair in this case)

pildanovak, that looks very good! I'd like to try the new particle stuff, too. Is there a description somewhere? I looked at the Info Center but wasn't able to find something...

Hi, I think I found a bug. I was doing this mini-tut at the orange blog here: ... od#more-37
and after adding the hooks blender crashed!

To replicate do as follows and don't exit edit-mode until the end:
-add a plane
-select the upper 2 points
-extrude up 4 or 5 times
-select the lower 2 points and add a hook (CTRL-H) with a new empty
-do this with each horizontal lines of 2 vertices until you have done them all the way up
-exit edit-mode and Blender crashes

important: Blender crashes only if you extrude the vertices and add hooks without leaving edit-mode. If you extrude, exit and enter edit-mode, add the hooks, exit edit-mode, Blender keeps running nicely.

found another, a shortcut misbehaviour:

when you're in armature edit-mode if you press KEY-U as a result you go back by 1 undo step.
If you instead go to 3dviewheader>>Armature>>Undo Editing (shortcut: KEY-U) as a result Blender reloads the original data.

and another in editing mesh:

in edit-mode if you want to "reload original data" you can go to
3dHeaderMenu>>Mesh>>Undo History>>Undo All Changes (shortcut Ctrl-U)
But if you press Crtl-U in the 3d window you get a "Save User Defaults?"

Wow. The new loopcut tool is painfully slow. I sure hope this changes soon. Also what happened to the loopcut "smooth" option? I hope this comes back as well.

Hi, when you do a loopcut, if you press SKey you enable smooth :
